Roppongi Museum, located next to Azabu Juban Station, famed to be the setting of Sailor Moon, presents a “Sailor Moon Museum” exhibition from July 1 to December 30 this year. The exhibition will commemorate the 30th anniversary of the serialization of Sailor Moon, a classic shojo manga that became a social phenomenon in the 1990s and remains highly popular even today.
The exhibition will be the largest ever of its kind, including new original sketches by Naoko Takeuchi, the original author, as well as rare color original sketches, some of which will be on display for the first time. The exhibition will be divided into three phases, Vol. 1, Vol. 2, and Vol. 3, and all color original sketches will be replaced each round.
There will also be a Sailor Moon-themed café serving both sweet and savory dishes decorated with the colors of the Sailor Scouts, latte art with famous quotes from Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon, and of course the famous moon motif. Takeout Sailor Moon or Sailor Chibi Moon cookies will also be available. During the duration of the exhibition, head to the Taiwanese tapioca tea shop The Alley to get Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon-themed takeaway tapioca drinks.
